Read The Naming of the Beasts by Mike Carey

Read The Naming of the Beasts by Mike Carey, the fifth book in the Felix Castor urban fantasy series. The fourth book ended with a huge cliffhanger and I was worried that Carey was going to make a habit of using this overused gimmick from now on. I couldn't have been more wrong.
The Naming of the Beasts ties up a number of loose threads from the previous four books in a conclusive and action-packed way. While the presence of ghosts, zombies, loup-garous, and demons are still a fact of life in this world there is enough closure in this book to make me wonder if this could be the last Felix Castor novel.
